United States v. Taylor, No. 15-1775 (1st Cir. 2017)Annotate this Case
Defendant pled guilty to being a felon in possession of a firearm. Prior to the sentencing hearing, the government submitted a motion requesting that the district court apply the sentencing enhancement for trafficking in firearms under section 2K2.1(b)(5) of the United States Sentencing Guidelines. The district court found that the sentencing enhancement applied and sentenced Defendant to a term of imprisonment of seventy-one months. Defendant appealed the trafficking enhancement. The First Circuit affirmed, holding that the district court did not plainly err in finding that the trafficking enhancement applied.
